TKC EXCLUSIVE!!! ESSENTIAL GOVERNMENT WORKER COMPLAINTS IN KANSAS CITY GROW LOUDER AS BORDER WALL SHUT DOWN CONTINUES!!!
We're starting to hear back from denizens of our blog community as the shut down drags on and the local complaints are growing louder.
While the typical ranting against Prez Trump is to be expected, it has been surprising that most of the local talk actually doesn't blame the Prez.
Instead . . .
ONE OF THE BEST CRITICISM WE'VE HEARD IS FROM ESSENTIAL KCMO GOVERNMENT WORKERS REVEALING SHUT DOWN UNFAIRNESS!!!
Here's the word . . .
"In this shut down it's the essential Federal employees who are really being treated unfairly. While other workers are going to get what is tantamount to a paid vacation, the rest of us working are basically losing our annual leave and taking a major financial hit."
Again . . .
We remind locals that KC is home to around 50K federal employees in the metro and a great many of them are working through the shut down and will not only be bad mouthed by the media and Conservatives but also suffer economic hardship as well.
